Default Re: Springtime for Geek Girls?

For extra amusement, one sees people in MMOs who are contemptuous of the roleplayers, whom they consider "nerds". I suspect that reactions to those people are part of the "gatekeeping" thing -- people don't want someone in their nerd hangout who is hostile to nerds. On the other hand, for the most part I have found that it's a lot more effective to just cheerfully agree that, gosh, MMO players sure are nerds.
